Members of the cast of the play to be presented also on the same date were introduced. Can You Beat the Tale of This Dog? Believe it or not, this is a true A couple living in Pennsylvania bought a dog but couldn't keep him at home. Regularly each morning the animal would disappear but was sure to return shortly after noon. The couple thought to break the dog of his roving disposition so sent him to board at the kennels. A few days later a brakeman and a conductor came to the house. "Did that dog of yours get killed?" they asked. The couple explained what they had done. "Well, I'll be doggoned," ejaculated the conductor. "Do you know that dog of yours used to sneak aboard the 9:30 train every day for Philadelphia. We sort of got to like him; looked for him, petted him, and fed him. He used to be absent for about an hour after arriving but never failed to be back in time to catch the 11:30 for home. When he ceased coming, we missed him, found out he belonged to you and came to ask if he had been run over or killed." RECEPTION FOR NEW STUDENTS ENJOYED Welcoming about 85 new students to Junior College, the Student Association sponsored a reception Friday, February 13, in the gym of the school. The music was very good and everyone had a good time. Members of the faculty present were: Mr. Miner, Miss Thomason, Mrs. Bender, Mr. Dupree, and Mr. Harris. HONORARY SOCIETY HOLDS FIRST MEET Students of the Houston Junior College, with a B average, attended the first meeting of the Honorary Society in the home of Miss Earlene Gunn, Saturday evening.

Plans for regular meetings, organization, and various other steps of the club were discussed. The club expects soon to select a suitable pin as a society emblem. All students, carrying three or more courses are eligible for membership. Mrs. Soul, French teacher and sponsor of the club, urges students who are interested to report, either to her Mrs. John R. Bender. J C.

Tuition Reduced tuition fees in the college may result from the action of Senator Woodul of Harris County who Friday introduced a bill in the senate providing for the Houston independent school district to operate the College. The bill provides for direct supervision and operation of the school by the district board, whereas two boards would be necessary should the district now attempt to operate a college. Likewise provision is made in the bill for a special tax to care for expenses which, at present, are being solely met by tuition fees charged the students. A petition signed by 500 and a two-thirds majority vote would be necessary to create the special fund. Senator Woodul's bill would make it possible to take care of students more adequately and would smooth out other phases of college opera- NEW CLASSES IN SPRING SCHEDULE Sufficient Enrollment Has Made It Possible To Add New Subjects Nine new classes have been added to the Houston Junior college spring 1931 schedule, according to N.
